Albert can't hear you, he's trapped inside a cake, he should be able to eat his way out in a few days.

Someone please cue the"oh snap" flow chart..?

You can't feel bad for the guy. He had a bad attitude early in his career, had a stretch of 2/3 years of "Contract" quality football, cashed in, and now doesn't care.

He can go to the IT'S THE SYSTEM card, but he was complaining last year.

I'm glad Warren Sapp called him out. Now we can expect fat Albert's "Om nom nom" tweet reply any day.

oh, and for the above poster:

If I was getting paid $21million to play football, I might feel compelled to show up on off days and mow the practice field too.

Jay-suhs Ablbert: Warren Sapp, LaVarr Arrington, London Fletcher, John Riggins, Sam Freakin' Huff have all called you out and basically called you soft and an overpriced crybaby What is it going to take for you to man up and prove them wrong? Getting kicked in the nuts by the Ghost of Nightrain Lane?

Ever since I saw Haynesworth stomp on that guy's head when he was with the Titans, I've hoped for his demise in the NFL. But then he ends up getting a sweet contract with the Redskins.

Still hoping he chokes on a pretzel or something.

Unfortunately, this is the result of a Free-Agency driven league. Players can biatch and moan for trades and new contracts. It is a wonder they even bother signing people longer than 1 year, since they can just complain or not show up and get traded or a new contract.

If teams continually allow players to biatch and moan to get their way, then they should expect more situations like this down the road. It isn't even about the dollar amount anymore (although it is HUGE in this case), it is more about the precedent that has been set by people like Jay Cutler, Eli Manning, Phil Rivers, etc... who have shown no regard for draft rights, or contracts, and use the pout and moan card until they get their way.

Warren Sapp is an asshole.

Just ask Chad Clifton, who was hospitalized for a few weeks and went through months of rehab due to a totally unnecessary blind side hit a few years ago.

I don't see how this is a bad thing. The teams can cut these guys at any given point. As soon as they feel that a guy is not producing he gets the ax. Cap number too high? Goodbye. How many running backs ever see the end of their contracts? It's a 2 way street.

They can't tho. The way signing bonuses are used against cap space, cutting someone could end up hurting your teams financial situation drastically. A more open FA market just kills the NFL being anything but a business running around as a sport. If this isnt a bad thing, and in practice "it doesnt matter", why even bother with contracts in the first place?

The salary cap is put in place so small market teams have a shot at competing, allowing players to circumvent teams and contracts for personal whims goes against the entire competitive-ness of the NFL.

This is a tough one for me. I know what hit you are talking about and it was sad what happened to him. However, I've played football for 20 of my 30 years (never college, FYI, as I wasn't good enough, but Pop Warner, HS, adult semi-pro) and the message was always the same: "Go 100% or get hurt."

I was a receiver; on long runs, if there was nobody to block, I'd spin around and run full speed into anybody I could find.

That's why I love the game.

That said, I won't really argue against anyone who thinks that hit was BS. I know that's hypocritical; it's like the devil and angel on my shoulders thing.

Too bad Clifton forgot that when the ball changes teams, you go from being offense to defense. That same blind side hit happens every single game on at least one kickoff. The problem is in the fat he was carrying. Blame Clifton just like you should blame a hockey player for going across the middle with his head down.

yeah i remember that....it was unnecessary, but Clifton should have had his head on a swivel. It was sad that it ended his season (as i recall) and it kinda showed Sapp's true colors, but there was a live ball in play and Clifton should have been more aware.

i also remember the Packers coach confronting Sapp after the game, and Sapp shouting something like "well then put on a helmet and let's go!" to the guy. That is douchebagism to the power of douchebagism.

Yeah Warren, a 55yr old guy is gonna go mano a mano with you.

anyways. Unnecessary, but unfortunately within the rules of football at the time. can't entirely pin that one on Sapp.

Considering Eli all ready has a Super Bowl ring on his finger, and the Giants are looking to be a contender for the immediate future, I think it worked out pretty well for him.

That's not the point. The point is he and his father circumvented the draft that everyone else respects through grade A level amounts of sand in their vaginas.

Hey, I don't know about you, but I trash anyone who does that and never root for them. Including the media's golden boy in John Elway. I will admit to rooting for the Broncos in their first Super Bowl victory but thats because I was 8 and had no idea Elway did that. Having parents who went to college in Colorado didn't help...

I remember Rivers holding out during his rookie contract negotiations. His agent's arguments were "While he was the fourth pick, you did trade the first overall pick to get him, so we want more than the 4th pick normally gets."

Because if this, Rivers missed a lot of training camp in 2004, and did get acclimated to the offensive scheme. The "bust at this point" second rounder from 2001 Drew Brees started that season. The rest is history.

I would have to make the argument that a rookie holding out (something that happens multiple times every year) is a lot different than pulling an Elway/Eli/Steve Francis and refusing to play for the team that drafted you and whining like a petulant biatch until you get your way.

And holding out to get the best possible contract is also different than holding out to get a BETTER contract if you are already UNDER contract.

Sapp'shiat of Clifton was clean AND unnecessary. On a turnover, you're now defense, best have your head on a swivel.

Sapp IS a douchenozzle of the highest order, but you don't need to look at the Clifton hit to prove it. One things' for sure, he always played at full-throttle, and I won't try to take that away from him.

Haynesworth is a worthless twatwaffle that needs to be Abner'd.

This.

I was going to be helpful and provide a Youtube link to the incident, looks like the NFL has that on lockdown since you know, he's a "respected journalist" for their network now.

If you type in Warren S... it tries to guess what you are typing and WARREN SAPP CHEAP SHOT comes up. If you search for it, it's not there though. Clear indication it was but was removed.

I tried searched for Chad Clifton, same result. Who is the retard that put Warren Sapp, Albert Haynesworth, and hero together?

Come on subby, and mods, don't hide. You done stupid, and your nose needs to be rubbed in it.

Also, pico, saying 'due to' doesn't make you look any smarter.
